Request for Information on Gloster Gladiator Pilot Notes and cockpit for RAF version

On another forum a group of dedicated flight simulation enthusiasts are hoping to create a flyable Gloster Gladiator which will require detailed 3D modelling of the cockpit. Currently after much searching through the internet they have drawn a blank on information specifically for Gloster Gladiator Pilot Notes, (have searched everywhere and this is not for sale AFAIK) as well as cockpit images/details for the RAF version. The model once completed will be given to the flight simulation community for free to use in the WW2 combat flight simulation IL2: Cliffs of Dover, so this isn't a commercial endeavour it is being done as a hobby only by a talented group of 3D modellers. I know this forum contains some of the best aviation historians so hope you don't mind me posting the message here and seeing if anyone can help with information, images, schematics, etc, etc? Cheers, MP

I have been collecting Pilot's Notes for nearly 60 years and I think I can say with confidence none were produced for the British services. (It is just possible Glosters may have produced their own for internal use). The information you require will be in the Volume One for the type.

Might I suggest contacting the Jet Age Museum for anything Gloster related: http://www.jetagemuseum.org/

How about the Shuttleworth or Fighter collections?
